Tax Benefits* - Individuals

What are the individual tax benefits?

Tax Benefits for Individuals
We knew about the tax write off; we didn't realize that our daily benefit of $1,000 per day in our 80's was tax free.

Tax benefits* for individuals with long-term care

  • Tax-qualified long-term care insurance premiums are considered personal medical expenses for those who itemize their deductions. The amount considered a medical expense is limited to the eligible premium, per the Internal Revenue Code 213(d), that is based on the age of the insured individual. (The amounts are indexed annually for inflation.)
